Do you scan Pinterest for hours? Do you clip from quilting magazines? Bookmark blogs and websites? Do you have the latest quilting book published? Are you fascinated by a favorite technique? Do you have a favorite instructor or famous quilter you are inspired by? Leave a comment, let me know.
Of all these resources, I can say without hesitation or doubt my greatest inspiration, month after month, is our Show and Tell. I see the work of “My Ladies,” (my affectionate term for my fellow guild members), and I’m moved to create, repeat, try, start, or just do something with fabric. There are months when I only enter my quilt room to iron a shirt, yet I’m suddenly there on the third Saturday after a guild meeting, trying to get my bearings or start yet another new project. With all the books, blogs and and quilting magazines overwhelming my senses without fail, “my ladies” shine above as inspiration and for that I’m ever grateful.
